Produced by head Chieftain Paddy Maloney, The Celtic Harp is essentially a showcase for the very talented harpist Derek Bell. Bell handled all of the arrangements, as well as contributed harpsichord and tiompan to the proceedings. Fine solos from flute god Matt Malloy ("Parting of Friends/Kerry Fling"), vocalist Kevin Conneff ("Green Fields of America"), and pipe player Maloney ("T'Aimse 'Im Chodladh") give the album a definite Chieftain feel, but The Celtic Harp belongs to Bell, who infuses each note with the subtlety and grace of a true master.
